MURAP Scholars' Guide to Remote Resources: Databases & Journals


The UNC-CH libraries have access to hundreds of electronic journals that you can look through to help in your research. You can access these journals through the Library's home page under the "Search & Find" tab.


The E-Journals page on the library website allows you to search for specific journals by title or ISSN/ISBN. It also allows you to browse by subject under several different headings.
